you tell us? >> we know that the senator had this scheduled trip and arrived on friday in myanmar hoping to talk to leaders. on a five-nation tour, jim webb got just what he wanted. he had unprecedented talks with leaders and he won the release of an american. on tuesday, johnheyett sentenced toea rs of hard labor for helping a democracy leader violate the terms of her house arrest. in a statement, the senator said, "i'm grateful to the government for honoring these requests and it is my hope that we can take advantage of these gestures as a way to begin laying a foundation of good will and confidence building in the future." >> it is a good thing. it will help raise awareness of the situation. it is getting the u.s. involved. >> webb is the first member of congress in more than a decade to visit the country. some people hope this release will let the u.s. focus more on the controversy in the asian country. >> it will put pressure on the government and it might eventually result in a change. i do not think it will happen quickly. everything helps. this is a step in the right direc
on cnn express. joining us from the missouri state fair. talk about getting the pulse of america, what are you hearing? >> reporter: we have been driving from atlanta to des moines and passed through georgia, tennessee, kentucky, illinois, missouri, heading into kansas and iowa. we're talking to people in places smaller than what would get media coverage about health care. as the health care debate was heating up on tv, we were trying to get a quieter discussion going. there was plenty of disagreement where we went. we ended up in an interesting place, northwestern kentucky on the illinois border. we had a bit of a town hall meeting. one was a democratic candidate who ran in the last election and lost. she had very, very strong views on health care. here is a bit of a taste of what she told us. >> well, my husband and i are two of the 47 million plus that don't have health care. i'm not talking insurance. i want health care. my husband had diabetes and a bout with cancer. what insurance company is going to cover us. if i get sick, i'm going to the emergency room. who is that costing? i
like they want a dossier on all of us. but this one has such disdain for the wealthy that they would use it as a weapon. maybe a shaming campaign, other intimidation factors. >> collecting data for efficacy of healthcare treatments? could that lead to rationing? it is not the collection, it is how the government uses it. you talk about a 1,000-page healthcare bill. he was talking to somebody and they said that bill could be 50 to 75 pages but it is not. it is filled with these very vague lines about things like data collection and you ought to be very nervous with it. neil: why can't they make it like the manual for an iphone. >> try to read that. neil: we can read. but adam, i have been trying to give them the benefit of the doubt. explain the logic of this checking account thing. >> well, no one likes to have their privacy invaded in any way. if there is any logic to this -- and i'm not saying i think it is a good idea but we all have insurance providers who have a lot of insurance. people who provide us credit have information on us. so, to explain a rationale, if the government i
? >> in some cases, yes, because dogs, animals are so innocent they cannot protect themselves from us, the humans just like children. and those are our victims that absolutely have no recourse. and i think that's why people are so touched and so outraged when animals are taken advantage of like this. but, look, you can't keep him in forever. he's out. he did his time. i say get on with it and quit giving him any attention. >> would you go to a philadelphia eagles football game and watch him? >> no. >> all right. >> i would not pay for a ticket that would support michael vick. what are they going to do with mcnabb? he's all scrubbed in sunshine. you have vick over the corner, a convicted felon that made dogs fight to the death. now, that's certainly two ends of the spectrum for the philly eagles. >> nancy's answering your questions. they're coming up.

the country on what else? the cnn express. joining us now from the missouri state fair. talk about getting the pulse of america, ali, what are you hearing? >> reporter: yeah. this is a fantastic place to do that. we've been driving from atlanta to des moines and we passed through georgia, kentucky, tennessee. illinois, missouri heading into kansas and iowa and we're talking to people usually in places smaller than would normally get media coverage about health care. in the beginning of the week as the debate was really heating up on tv with the town hall meetings we were trying to get a quieter discussion going. there was plenty of disagreement where we went. we ended up in one interesting place in paducah, kentucky, northwestern kentucky just on the illinois border and had a bit of a town hall meeting. one of the women was formerly a congressional candidate. she was a democratic candidate who ran in the last election and lost but had some very, very strong views on health care. here is a bit of a taste of what she told us. >> my husband and i are two of the 47 million plus that don't have
people saying, how can we afford this right now? we've got to use our resources for the deficit. first, i want everyone to understand the source of our deficit, because if you do not understand that, argument will not make sense. when i walked into the white house, i have people waiting for me at the door, a 1.3 trillion dollar deficit. 1.3 trillion dollars. i say that -- this was not -- and this is not, by the way, entirely the previous administration's fault. the financial crisis was so bad that revenue plummeted and all of this money was spent in making sure that the banking system did not completely collapsed. so all of the actions that have been taken just spite the deficit. but the problem actually is not that -- the extraordinary steps we've taken over last one or two years. the real problem is much longer. even if we had no fiscal crisis whatsoever, we have a structural deficit, we are spending more money than we're taking in, we have been doing it for the last eight years. when we passed the prescription drug benefit for medicare by a republican congress, they did not pay for it.
. put the pieces in their pocket or their back packin tell us how many questions they saw it correctly. presumably people are not smart and because they shred the piece of paper but now they claim to sell seven. it is not its if we had a few bad apples that skewed the distribution. instead we have lots of people who cheated just a little bit. why do people cheat? the bekka model of cheating is every day when we walk by anything we consider three things. we say to ourselves how much money is in the till? what is the chance they will catch us? how much time we get in prison? [laughter] we weighed the cost benefit analysis and decide whether-- it sounds like a crazy model and it is. but realize this is the model driving the legal system. so in some sense it is an odd modeled but it very important model in a practical way because of the role of economics in our society. so, let's check this model. how would we checked that model? a big part of it is how you spend today. some people tell them we would pay 10 cents for question, others 25 cents per correct question. would it matter how much

is 2% over last year's. do you use different deflators? >> we do different slightly different deflators. i'm using a gdp deflator. the defense department computes their own. i don't think that's the difference in one year because it's a slight difference and the difference would only really show up if you're looking over an extended period of time, 20, 30, 40 years. but what i've heard the department of defense saying is that the inflation adjusted growth will be less than 2% in future years. what i've heard them say for this year is around 4%. >> the other thing is 73% increase defense budget. in past years your predecessor would lay this out, 43% increase. does your include supplementles? >> that's looking at, well, i'd have to look. i believe that's looking at the base defense budget. >> your figure would have been the low? >> i'm not familiar with that figure. >> we used a lot in the past and this must be supplementals. >> we can look at that. >> baneline budget and two separate bills sent up not all rolled into one. so we should be thinking 660, 670 a year? >> it looks like what th
, they were used to frame legislation to the end of the century. the other agencies are prepared to hold grand meetings and copenhagen and then agree, 40 or more years, the assumption is global heating is so serious that expensive action is needed now if we are to avoid damaging climate change affecting our children and grandchildren. obviously it will be the cool spell indicating they have overestimated climate change. i think that instead they have underestimated the severity of global heating, mainly because they paid too much attention to human factors to industrial and domestic pollution, they have not enough attention to the earth's response to what we are doing. this is going to be the subject of my talk this evening. when i look at climate change from the point of view of our planet rather than the human viewpoint, i see that report as the scariest official document i have ever read. the earth does not just passively accept what we do, it responds to climate change and that response is more deadly than the small changes we have made. because these responses are beginning to happen, the
